There may be countless ways to spend your holiday shopping dollar, but few that can directly make the day special for an animal. D.E.L.T.A. Rescue is asking people to give a special present to a rescued dog or cat. Every one of the over 1500 animals at D.E.L.T.A. will receive a personalized stocking full of his favorite treat, thanks to donations earmarked for this special cause.

DELTA Rescue Puppys

Leo Grillo, founder of D.E.L.T.A. Rescue has been filling stockings for the animals at the 115 acre animal sanctuary for 29-years. “Christmas is for kids, and animals are our children too. The joy of seeing a dog smile and then run off with his treat is what giving is all about.”

D.E.L.T.A. Rescue is the world’s largest no-kill, care for life animal sanctuary. Since 1979, it has been a champion for the countless animals who have lived there, as well as for the rights of animals throughout the world. Grlllo says, “Besides donating to our own 1500 animals, you can take treats to your local animal shelter and bring those lonely dogs and cats some Holiday cheer.”

To have your donation go to help pay for these stockings, please visit www.deltarescue.org and click on any “donate” button.

From the Connecticut Humane Society (Newington, Connecticut 06111)

We have already raised $1625 but your support is still urgently needed. Support the Annual Fund Drive for Animals.


Your strong and steady support helps pets like Shasta in time for it to matter. Our staff took extraordinary care of her, removing the bullet lodged in her jaw and treating the infected wound. She was loved and tended to every day until finally, she was healthy and ready for adoption into a loving home.

Help us continue to care for pets like Shasta in 2014 by making an Annual Fund Drive gift today.

Thank you!

Sit … Stay … Watch … and make a pledge to support homeless pets at the Dumb Friends League (Denver, Colorado 80231) on Sunday, Jan. 26. Tune in to the 16th annual Pledges for Pets Telethon, sponsored by Hill’s Science Diet®, on FOX31/KDVR from noon to 5 p.m.


During the five-hour live broadcast, viewers will hear heartwarming adoption stories, as well as meet dozens of adoptable pets, including cats, dogs, rabbits and other small pets.

“Animal lovers will see the many ways the Dumb Friends League helps pets, horses and people in our community,” said Bob Rohde, president and CEO. “They’ll also see how their donations can make a life-changing difference for thousands of homeless animals that come into our care every year.”

The Dumb Friends League hopes to raise more than $300,000 during this year’s telethon. The funds raised will help provide loving care and vital services for thousands of cats, dogs and other small animals, as well as abused and neglected horses at the Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center. A private, nonprofit organization, the Dumb Friends League spends $25,121 a day on companion animal services, including $7,965 daily on veterinary care in our shelters and on our two mobile clinics. An additional $2,017 a day is spent on equine services, including veterinary care, feed, rehabilitation and training for the animals at the equine center.

 “Any dollar amount—whether it’s a one-time or monthly contribution—will have a direct impact on the pets and people that count on us each and every day,” said Rohde.

Last year, 16,885 animals were adopted to new homes or returned to their owners by the Dumb Friends League. The organization also offers other critical services, including lost and found, humane education, behavior training, foster care, animal cruelty investigations and spay/neuter surgeries at reduced fees (subsidized by Dumb Friends League donors) for pets in underserved areas.

The Pledges for Pets Telethon will be hosted by FOX31 on-air talent, including Brooke Wagner, Kirk Yuhnke, Chris Parente, Ken Clark, Jennifer Broome, Chris Tomer, Shaul Turner, Chris Jose, Shanna Mendiola and Dan Daru. Denise Plante and Murphy Huston of KOSI 101 will also help emcee the telethon.

For more information about the Dumb Friends League and the telethon, visit ddfl.org/telethon or call (303) 751-5772. Pet lovers who are unable to watch the telethon can still make pledges online or by calling (303) 751-5772.

From the Pilgrim Bark Park (Provincetown, Massachusetts 02657)

Thanks to the support of many, Pilgrim Bark Park is now five years old!


As many of you know, in 2008, the Town provided land on which to build an enclosed dog park. Our goal was to provide a safe place for dogs to socialize and recreate, to let your pouch loose!  We turned unused land into a popular community and tourist resource, and an unsightly corner into an attractive entryway into Provincetown.
Now our goal is to maintain Pilgrim Bark Park as a clean and safe place for dogs and their owners. In order to accomplish our goal we need YOUR help.
Although a public park, Pilgrim Bark Park receives NO taxpayer dollars.  In order to amass the needed $12,500-15,000 a year to keep the park clean, stocked and safe we need YOUR help.
Please consider a minimum tax deductible donation of $25 to become a FRIEND of Pilgrim Bark Park.  If you are already a FRIEND, please renew your friendship TODAY!

From the Dumb Friends League (Denver, Colorado 80231; Castle Rock, CO 80109; Franktown, CO 80116 )

Fall was in the air as animal lovers big and small hit the Glendale Farm Open Space trail Saturday for the Dumb Friends League’s ninth annual Wag `n Trail. More than 1,500 people and 750 dogs participated in the fundraiser, a 1.6-mile hike to raise money for the Dumb Friends League Buddy Center in Castle Rock.


The event brought in more than $145,000 which will help Daisy, a 4-year-old Chihuahua mix, and thousands of other homeless pets get a second chance at finding a loving forever home.

In addition to the hike, participants had the opportunity to watch flyball demonstrations, enjoy refreshments, meet adoptable pets and shop for pet-friendly merchandise and food from local vendors.

“Through the generosity of all of the participants, donors, sponsors, vendors and volunteers, this year’s Wag `n Trail was a huge success,” said Bob Rohde, president and CEO of the Dumb Friends League. “The power of collaboration and compassion will enable the Dumb Friends League to continue to provide services that help pets and people in Douglas County and beyond, and we are truly grateful.”

The funds raised will help provide shelter and care for as many as 4,000 homeless cats, dogs and other small pets that come to the Buddy Center each year.

The 2013 Wag `n Trail was sponsored by Hill’s Science Diet®. For more information, or to make a donation through Oct. 21, visit www.ddfl.org/wnt or call (303) 751-5772.

Do you love animals? Polar Bottle does. After a successful pilot year, the company has partnered again with the Humane Society of Boulder Valley (Boulder, Colorado 80301) for the annual Custom Pet Photo Water Bottle promotion. Just in time for the holidays, the promotion — which runs from November 13 to December 20 — allows customers to customize an Insulated Sport Polar Bottle with a photo of their favorite pet, whether it’s a guinea pig, dog, cat, lizard or, in some cases, their child.


For every bottle sold, $5 will go directly to the Humane Society of Boulder Valley to support their mission to help homeless and abandoned animals.

“We had so much fun doing the bottles last year and they were such a hit with our customers,” said Polar Bottle president Judy Amabile of launching the second annual promotion. “We are always looking for a way to give back to the community and the Humane Society does such important work.”

The patented Polar Bottle features an insulating layer between two walls of plastic, so it keeps liquids cool twice as long as other water bottles. The photos are printed on the insulating layer and show through the clear outer plastic.

The Polar Bottle fits standard bike water bottle cages and features a convenient, removable carrying strap. It is produced in the U.S. and is BPA- and phthalate- free.
